Sunlight, or any alternate light, that illuminates a scene – creates warmth and adds focus. As a foodie blogger, I know how important light is to taking a good photograph to post on my blog. In summer, there is an abundance of light, and it is much easier to capture a good shot. Now that winter is rearing its dull, grey head, however, finding good natural light, and the right time of day is proving very difficult.
Where possible, I also prefer not to use photo editing to alter the light. I like to use it to frame my photos, or add other effects, but with lighting, I try not mess around with it too much. It looks like I’ll be using the editing programs a lot more as winter sets in.
For now though, I was able to get a lovely bright shot of the gluten free cornbread I baked (recipe will be posted shortly).
